    Primary and Non-Primary Addresses

    Addresses are divided into two types:

    • Primary

    • Non Primary

    By default, the primary address is the one that is most commonly used by your practice for the supplier's mailing purposes. The system administrator can add new address types and nominate which of these are to be considered the primary details. The primary details flow through to the Main tab for a supplier. Examples of address types your practice may use are:

    • Home

    • Billing

    • Business

    • Registered

    Only one occurrence of each address type can be attached to a supplier. Where more than one type of address is required (for example, two home addresses), two separate address types must be created within CCH Practice Management. In this situation there may be a ‘HOME1’ and ‘HOME2’ address type.


    New address types and Other Details types must be created by the system administrator using the following menu path: Maintenance>System>Address/Phone>Address Type...and Phone/Email Types... before they can be accessed from within the Detail tab. An address type can only be used once per supplier.
